THE FACTS.

THE FUTURE.

THE FIGHT TO FIX AMERICA--

BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE.

In the words of Harvard economist Niall Ferguson, the United States is "an empire on the edge of chaos." Why? Glenn Beck thinks the answer is pretty simple: Because we've turned our backs on the Constitution.

Yes, our country is financially broke, but that's just a side effect of our broken spirit, our broken faith in government, the broken promises by our leaders, and a broken political system that has centralized power at the expense of individual rights.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Six-time No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Beck (www.glennbeck.com) is opinionated, theatrical, given to bouts of verbal flatulence, and swings a wide bat at his real or presumed enemies. But judge Broke on its own merits. In it, he makes a solid case for the dangers Americans face if we continue to pile up immense deficits without regard to the effects on the nation once the bills come due. Brian Sack, Beck's frequent cohost on his eponymous Fox TV show, reads most of the book, but Beck pops in now and then to goose the action along. Beck is fun to listen to; Sack is like an acolyte trying desperately to please his master. Fulminate at it, use the CDs as Frisbees, rage at the machine; amid the anti-Obama rhetoric and constant slams against "progressives," Beck hits a homer. Recommended.—Joseph L. Carlson, Vandenberg Air Force Base Lib., Lompoc, CA
